Ledyard National Bank Named One of the Nation’s Best Banks to Work For by American Banker

December 16, 2021 GMT

HANOVER, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 16, 2021--

For the second consecutive year, Ledyard National Bank has been named one of the nation’s Best Banks to Work For in 2021 by American Banker, the banking industry’s premier daily newspaper .

The Best Banks to Work For program, which was initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction. As American Banker states, “The Best Banks to Work For with under $3 billion of assets often have to do more with less, compared with their larger competitors. That can put a lot of extra stress and pressure on employees, especially amid all the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Kathy Underwood, Ledyard Bank’s President & CEO, added, “We’re so proud to be included again in this outstanding group of banks recognized by American Banker. As one of only two banks recognized across New Hampshire and Vermont, combined with being recognized as the business with the friendliest employees in the Valley News’ Reader’s Choice Awards, the recognition is a testament to the dedication and thoughtful work of our fantastic employees and board of directors.”


Full results of this year’s program are available at American Banker and in the November issue of American Banker Magazine.
